Irish Mandate Union And Joanne Delaney

EDM number 1425 in 2005-06, proposed by Sharon Hodgson on 19/01/2006.

That this House supports the global campaign by the Irish Mandate Union and the LabourStart website concerning Dunnes Stores, which sacked 22 year-old shop steward Joanne Delaney of the Mandate Union in November 2005 from her job at its Crumlin store in South Dublin for wearing her union badge; notes with alarm that Dunnes has refused to meet Joanne because she was accompanied by a union official; believes that this high-handed action by Dunnes contradicts the Irish system of industrial relations, which is based on a social partnership arrangement where each party respects the rights of the other; and calls on Dunnes Stores to halt its bullying tactics and immediately to re-instate Joanne Delaney.

This motion has been signed by a total of 23 MPs.
